Tri-Mer Corp.'s Tri-Flow is a new filtration concept designed to deliver HEPA-like performance with a MERV 16 rating.  The compact filters are offered as a higher-performing alternative to bag, cartridge and pocket filters typically rated MERV 10-13. The Tri-Flow has a small footprint, and an exceptionally large filter surface area. The company says its filters provide 2-3 times more filtration compared with similarly dimensioned bag (pocket) filters. An even greater increase in filtration area versus volume is achieved in comparison with sleeve-type high efficiency filters.
Minimizing the size of a filter lowers manufacturing costs, and gives the OEM or end user valuable flexibility on where to locate the filter.

Tri-Mer says filter efficiencies of 99.999% on 0.5 micron and larger particles (by weight) are typical and existing dust collectors can often be adapted to accommodate Tri-Flow Compact filters.
